Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Service as it should be Ordered early evening,collected from local Waitrose store at 14.00 next day Needless to say, being a Roberts Radio it is perfect.. 02 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrific sound and quality bought for Dad stuck in hospital following a stroke, he loves it, very robust little radio, easy to use with great sound, super quality 26 January 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Would be great if batteries lasted longer I bought this to listen to the news whilst at work (whilst waiting for an iPod to be delievered). Good: Compact and portable Easy to use Found stations easily With DAB had access to some stations not available on FM (e.g. BBC World Service, 4 Xtra, etc). Bad: Battery life (first set of batteries lasted two shifts, 2nd set only 1)* Reception for DAB for BBC Radio Newcastle was worse than for FM. *Duracell Ultra(TM) batteries 10 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely personal radio Used this at 4 rugby World Cup matches to listen to the radio 5 live match commentary. Excellent reception. Had previously used a non DAB Personal radio and this Roberts DAB radio was far superior for ease of use and lack of interference. 27 October 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by OK, should be better. Quite good little radio companion, with, for me, a major caveat (the sleep function is useless). A little fiddly to set up but once done, that's it. It keeps all chosen stations in memory even when changing batteries (but it does NOT retain the chosen sleep function which, annoyingy, has to be reset every time). Granted that it eats batteries, particularly on DAB (a well know side effect of that mode for any radio), but I suggest doing as I did. Buy the Energizer Pro Charge AA/AAA Battery Charger. That comes with four AA batteries so that you'll always have a set ready for changeover and not have to keep buying expensive fresh batteries. They're ideal companions. 04 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Battery length extremely poor I bought this item some months back. Looks very smart, sound good but I am so disappointed regarding how often it needs new batteries. Four to five hours is the maximum. This radio was bought to replace a Sony which I had for ten or so years. The battery life on that was far longer and I only needed one triple A battery to run it. Can't understand why the battery life is so short. Wouldn't recommend this item. Joany C 29 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant little radio I bought this product for my elderly mother as a Christmas gift. She enjoys listening when she is in bed, she says the quality of sound is excellent and its compact nature very easy for her to handle. It has made a 95 year old very happy. 28 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Eats batteries Negatives: The main issue is the battery life 4 or 5 hours - completely unrealistic/expensive. The second issue is the DAB signal particularly moving around outdoors is very fussy. These combine to make this device useless to me. Positives: The exterior and buttons are well styled, and there is no silly/unnecessary clock which work even when the radio is off. 26 January 2015
